NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – A homicide investigation was launched Wednesday
afternoon after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered in a
creek that runs through New Albany's Binford Park.

of the children was under the age of two. The other child was an adolescent.
Their genders were not released.
Whitlow said a person walking through Binford Park discovered one of the
bodies in Falling Run Creek around 5:15 p.m. Wednesday and called police.
Binford Park is off Graybrook Lane north of downtown New Albany.
Whitlow wouldn't say how the victims died or whether any
weapons were found at the scene. He did say no vehicles were found at the park
that appeared to be related to the crime.
As detectives, evidence technicians and the coroner
worked the scene, the entrance to the park was closed with police tape. The
park is home to several sports fields and a golf course and sits below a public

on a homicide," Whitlow said. "We don't have many cases like this, especially
multiple deaths and children."

been determined as of Wednesday night. Police expect to have more information
